We still haven't seen anything concerning kids night. I was just wondering if you were still going to have it? Everyone is making plans for the summer and if your going to have it, I know my kids would love to be there. Will be waiting for your answer. Tracy Shaw
Answer:"KIDS NIGHT " is on the schedule for August 11, hope to see ya there!
From Jim Shiels Stockton 99 Speedway statistician to Tracy Shaw
The regular Stockton Point plan for all divisions pays points to all divisions as follows...(top five fast) 5-4-3-2-1 (Top five heat finish) 5-4-3-2-1 Top four dash finish (4-3-2-1) Main events (all finish positions) 50-48-46-44-40 & continuing to drop by two points per position to last place driver. On double point nights, only the main event points are double 100-96-92-88 & continuing to drop by four points per position to the last place driver.
The California Hot Wood Late Model heat race bonus program gives $2,000 to the winner, $1,00 to second, and $500 to third at the end of the season.The points are the same at 5-4-3-2-1 for the finish of any heat.
The California Hot Wood Tri-Holiday events pay the same cash bonus for the three 100-lap Late Model races, and all points earned in competition are recorded to both the drivers regular season total and to a special three race total to determine the champion of the three race series
The C.A.R.S., Inc Late Model Rookie of the year bonus program pays the top five rookies at the rate of $2,500-$1,000-$750-$500-$250. The winners here are decided by what points they earn on the regular season point chart.
It is important to note that for any "Double Point" nights that fall on a twin 38-lap Late Model show, the main event DOUBLE POINTS will only be paid for the FIRST feature. The second 38-lap feature that night will only get regular points.
It is quite likley that the Pure Stock division will see a change soon in that a B-Main Champion position will be created. Those drivers who race the semi will get the same point total as the A-Main (50-48-46-44-40-etc) I have already backdated the B-Main points and am ready for the move and know who is leading in B-Main points. Any and all drivers who are needed to fill out the 20-car A-Main and transfer from the B-Main to the A-Main will now have a 'choice' to do so. They can give up their A-Main transfer and keep their B-Main points or they can transfer and not get their B-Main points. If a driver qualified to transfer does not transfer, the transfer spot will be offered to the next driver in the finish lineup.
But of course none of the is "official" so you didn't hear it from me...RIGHT !!!

Re: Fw: Regarding guestbook answer
DEPENDS ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES...IF YOU HAVE TO WORK ON IT TO EXPEDITE MOVEMENT (GET IT OFF THE TRACK) THEN YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO DO SO....IF YOU ARE JUST LOOKING...SOMETIMES IT APPEARS THAT ONE IS WORKING ON IT...BUT USUALLY THEY'RE BEING WATCHED...THEN YOU'LL RETAIN YOUR POSITION, UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED...IT'S USUALLY A JUDGEMENT CALL, AND THE PENALTY IN MOST CASES...GO TO THE BACK....

Regarding guestbook answer
Shouldn't there be a greater penalty for working on your car on the track? Your saying if you go to the infield and work on your car you go to the back of the pack, and you are saying if you work on your car on the track (which is not allowed) you will also go to the back of the pack. Personally I think there should be a greater penalty for breaking working on the track rule. Tracy Shaw

I was just curious how you figure your point system? I also noticed that beside your regular point system there also is a bonus point system for LMS heats and LMS dashes, Could someone tell me how these are figured or where I might be able to find out this information? I hope I am not bothering anyone with all my questions. I'm just curious how all this stuff works, so I can follow what's going on. Tracy Shaw

A friend of mine and I are having a disagreement. We are hoping that you will solve this problem for us. We want to know what is the highest attendance record you have ever had and what year it was. If you could answer it for us that would be great. Thanks We will be waiting for your answer. Tracy Shaw
Answer: It was 5,225 on 7-3-84. New stands will only take 3,500 to 4,000, so that record will stand forever.
Thursday, May 24, 2001 2:15 AM1998 lms champI would like to know who was the LMS champ in 1998 plus the top five finishers. I moved to Texas so I never found out.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH a past spectator of 25 + YEARS.

This will be my first time going to the 99 Speedway, is it advisable to get at the ticket gate right at 3:00 p.m.? Or can we purchase advance tickets somewhere. Can we bring bottled water, food, backpacks, cameras, etc. into the grandstands.
We have tickets at the gate only. We'd prefer you not bring food or drinks. Cameras are fine. No matter how hot it is always bring a sweater or cover-up.

Red Flag Procedure
In reading the Guest book I see that there is a lot of confusion. In the case of a red flag the cars are required to stop as soon as safe to do so. After stopping for the red flag the crew or driver my ask a official if he can work on the car under red. The answer is as long as the car is in the infield you can work on the car under red. You can not work on the car on the TRACK. Further more it is up to the track officials to allow One crew member to come to the drivers aid for water and take a look at the car. No work is to be done on the car while on the track or will be sent to the rear of the field. Also if a car does come into the infield for any reason the car must start at the rear of the field. Hopes this clears up red flag procedures.

Re: 91. No, I think not. Mabybe it is 17A, well no, could be 23A, when he is here, well it is not 13A, could not be 72, have not seen him this year, maybe it is 3, naw could not be, now I am not sure but I am sure it is someone.
Thursday, May 17, 2001 1:46 PM
This is in response the OFF99PS comment, NO not everyone has been allowed to do any kind of work under RED flag conditions. We ourselves were penalized once with regards to a red flag, so you cannot say that it has always been allowed. If you touch your car on the track under red, you are finished. We have seen drivers parked because of that. If you needed to fix something, they made you wait until the yellow replaced the red, then you had to go into the pits for repairs. Argue if you please, but this is stating a fact, red means red, regardless of where you are. Stacie
Thursday, May 17, 2001 12:25 PM
I have not been able to find any rule in the 2001 GAM rules or tire specs that say soaking is not allowed. Is this an unspoken rule or has it been clarified in a drivers meeting that no soaking is allowed? If not, then maybe a clarification is in order at the next drivers meeting before beginning to tech tires. John, please respond. Thanks Ken Wendt

Favortism now that a joke. If that was the case then the 21 car would have not been back the second week. The officals were well aware that was going to happen again but like 99 always does Nothing. If you have a family member in the gam class good luck. I hope you like working on your car because i am sure the 91 has better things to do. Check with the 21 car and see why he was taken off the track then maybe you will understand the situation. I am sure #91 has better things to do than go into the wall or infield like the rest he is there to race not fix his car.that is not alot of fun really doesnt make sense to buy your way in the wreck your car dont think so. Like i said earlier ask the officials then maybe you will know whats going on. #91 has never been favored at the track far from it just ask around and learn. reply to last comment
Tuesday, May 15, 2001 6:28 PM
I have been a fan at 99 Speedway for many years...But for the last few years I have been very disgusted with the way things are happening..For instance, I have a family member who races with the GAM and I must say that there is a lot of favortism with GAM #91....I have never seen someone get so much attention and be so babied at the track....It is so ridiculous that the flagman will keep a yellow flag out until #91 is ready to come back out on the track...Every week this is happening...He goes in the in-field during a yellow, and the cars are ready to go and everything is cleared off the track and you keep the yellow out until #91 is on his way out, then they go one more lap then green...Is this just a fluke or is there favortism?

RE: MIKE CAPORUSSO'S QUESTION. ON SUPER SPEEDWAYS THIS RED FLAG RULE IS OBSERVED...ALL WORK MUST STOP. AT 99, CREWS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ALLOWED TO GET IT BACK TOGETHER ASAP, UNDER RED FLAG CONDITIONS. I THINK IT'S BECAUSE OF THE SIZE OF THE TRACK, AND THE QUICK LAPS TURNED, THAT MAKES IT NECESSARY TO ALLOW THE DRIVERS TO RETURN TO THE COMPETITION. I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY THAT ALL OF OUR DRIVERS HAVE BENEFITTED FROM THIS, AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER. ACTION PACKED SHORT TRACK RACIN' CAN'T GET YOU ANYWHERE WHILE SITTIN' IN THE PITS UNDER RED.....SO THEY SAY "GET IT TOGETHER, AND FALL IN TO THE REAR."

Answer to Mr. Caporusso's question
Dear Mr. Caporusso : Unless the rule has changed if you work on your car under "red flag" conditions you are to be penalized 1 lap.
Monday, May 14, 2001 8:30 PM
Will the May 26 race for the Late Models be a 76-lap event, or the traditional 100-laps?
yes it will be a 100 lapper

Yo Darwin from Ecuador:
It would be neat to have folks from another country at our track, but I would think that only non-point contender Pure Stock cars would be available to strange drivers with a "you break it--you pay for it" condition, and anything that you would consider shipping in would most likley be miles off our rules.
If you come, bring a flag of your country and your National Anthem on tape or disk (if it will work with our electric standard)
P.S. If your expecting "TOW MONEY" the deal is off.....
Good Morning, I would like to have a copy of your rule book, spec. the part that will tell me what the requirements for the drivers safety equipment are. Thank You. Jolene 20358 W. Gordon Way Wittmann, AZ 85361-9790

How is it that Harry Belletto is allowed to work on his car during a red flag??? Doesn't NASCAR have rules about this. My understanding of a red flag is that all cars stop and are "frozen" until the track is cleared to continue. Please let me know if this is right or wrong. Racing should be like any other sport, the basic rules to the sport Must be followed.
Anyone have an answer???

Wanted to know if you were considering posting a classified ad on your website for race cars and race parts?
People have posted things here to swap and sell, or even if they're looking for something. I hope that ansers your question.

Chris, I know the rule is, anybody who wants to test and tune on Friday needs to call in, But I guess a lot of us figure there will be enough people calling in, or that the test and tune just happens on Friday, We were sorry to hear that the test n tune was cancelled today. I know of at least 4-5 drivers that were expecting to be there. We could really use the seat time as you know! Well, we'll be sure and call next week. We will not be racing until my son gets some practice! Ken Wendt
You're right, please call Ron or Ken by Weds.to be sure they'll run a "Test & Tune".
